Team,

I've decided to study for my GMAT and starteded working on Critical Reasoning. I purchased Kaplan 800, Kaplan Premier, Kaplan Verbal, OG, and OG Verbal. Can someone tell me if the strategy I'm employing sounds like it might work? I'm trying to work smart and not hard. I'll also share the issues I'm currently facing shortly:

1 > I finished the CR section in Kaplan premier and the 50 questions. (2/3 days)
2 > I just finished the CR Quiz in Kaplan Verbal and the 12 quetions. (1 day)
3 > I'm now thinking about jumping on board to Kaplan 800 and finishing the Kaplan 800 quetions (2 days).
4 > Before moving on to SC, I want to do another 300-400 questions to become better at these cause I'm rotting on these.

When should I start thinking about doing the OG questions considering I haven't even looked in SC and RC? Should I just try out an exams 'CR' section and test my skills?

A couple more things: I noticed that my CR absolutely sucks. I'm spending on average 6 minutes per question and my scores don't bump more than 60%. If the average time I should be spending on each quesiton is less than 2 minutes and scoring 95%, what should I be employing to become better at these? I noticed a spreadsheet people were using to monitor their scores. Does anyone know where I can get a hold of that? It looked intriguing.

Also, when people are doing CR questions and you get questions wrong, how the heck do you learn from them if all the other questions are 'completely' different? I can't just bank on the fact that I see a 'similar' question. For example, if I see a strengthen question and get it wrong. I can't expect the next question I get is going to be the same type. My question is, what sort of general patterns am I looking at here? Is it just merely practice?

I really don't want to spend more than 2/3 weeks a section because I have my exam on Feb 14.

It is really good. It has helped a lot of people(incl. me) to improve in CR.
